While the hotel looks small when you walk in, we have not seen more beautiful and lavish rooms in any hotel we have ever stayed in. The service was incredible, the rooms were gorgeous, breakfast was fabulous. Worth every penny.

After poring over many options for a stay in Florence, we settled on the Orologio, and it turned out to be a terrific choice. The hotel's location on the Piazza Santa Maria Novella is excellent -- a bit away from the maddening crowds, but still a short walk to almost all of the major sights. The hotel is absolutely beautiful...

Our party of 7 (4 adults and 3 teenagers) booked 3 different rooms for one night. We drove to the hotel (very, very difficult with the one way streets and closed areas) and the took advantage of the 35 Euro valet parking (it was worth it). Deluxe Double room with Queen bed had an upstairs lounge area which we did...

We stayed here on our family visit to Florence earlier this month. The hotel is wonderful! Great location, nice big rooms. We had a family suite, and the room itself was a bit backward. My son was sleeping on the foldout sofa right when you walked into the room, with the tv. Our room was through his, with no tv....

Very good location, just minutes away from the train station - a beautiful small hotel. [You can walk here from the station] Interior is done in a very aesthetically pleasing fashion with comfort and luxury for the traveller as the top priority.

A short walk from the train station, on the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. There is no visible signage and it sits slightly back from the Piazza on your left as you walk from the station. The room was large and well appointed, as were the lobby and other public areas. Breakfast was an extensive buffet with many offerings. The fitness...

Very satisfied with the recent stay at this hotel. We liked the prime location, which is right in SMN square and also walking distance to the train station. Rooms are well appointed, great breakfast and reasonably priced. Standard rooms don't come with a view, but this is within expectation given the price. Will return!

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
